                                                        G.S.G.S                

                    A branch of the Ordnance Survey,  General Staff Geographical Section,

 has for many years produced OS 1" maps for the military -with a purple grid superimposed on the civil                                                                          version.   

 This "Modified British System" was more accurate for referencing, describing troop movements and                   for artillery range finding. These were issued in Flat ( i.e unmounted ) sheets.                                                     

       With the evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940, large numbers of what had been "training" maps were  now seen to be required in the event of an invasion. These were produced on mainly Popular (4th)      and 5th Edition  bases in various stages of revision and then had "War Revisions" where possible. 


                        These were isued as GSGS 3907 ( E&W) and GSGS 3908 ( Scotland )
